So many great sports action photos, it was so hard to even choose! One thing that's true is the Midwest loves their sports and it shows through the photographs. The first one really blew my mind when it came to perfect timing. You can tell the photographer was conscious of their surroundings and was looking for something a little bit different and it really shone through. Second place was yet another perfectly timed photo with great facial expressions and third was anew angle that really showed all the action happening within the net.
